If Gharani Strok's AW06 collection is anything to go by, next season is all about colour and not the perennial fashionable black. The feminine silk, chiffon and jersey pieces for which they are best known came in soft pinks, browns and greens accessorised with fur hats, gilets and folkloric pompom necklaces.
Sprig print pink and cream dresses had delicate ruffles on short sleeves and hems while slip dresses in 30s silhouettes were decorated with delicate beading. Other bolder floral prints were flecked with metallics or cut in girlish tea dresses with billowing sleeves.
The London-based duo, who count Madonna, Nicole Kidman and Gwyneth Paltrow among their clients, kept a seething audience tapping their feet for more than an hour while waiting for diva model Naomi Campbell to star in their show.
